Last month we kicked off the #PRStudChat #SummerCamp program with Lois Goh (@loisalmode), a student from Flagler College, moderating a session on how to incorporate social media into your PR planning. This month’s #PRStudChat session will take place on August 15th at 8:30 p.m. ET and will focus on how to unravel the technical aspect of public relations. Our student moderator / camp counselor will be Murewa Olubela (@PRmurewa), who is an undergraduate studying creative writing and public relations at the University of South Florida.
The session topic, selected by our student camp counselor, will involve the community in a dynamic discussion on the importance of the tech tester role in public relations and the use of social media management tools. Additional questions we’ll be asking that night will concentrate on website analytics, mobile technologies and the use of QR codes.
We expect another fast-paced and informative #PRStudChat session. If you have any questions you would like us to discuss, please feel free to post them in our LinkedIn Discussion Group. We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the technical aspect of PR, as it becomes a greater part of our PR practices. “See” you on the 15th.
